stacy was here (and probably spinning....): 10/01/2005 - 11/01/2005















Stacy Was Here :
Back at the Beginning

Sunday, October 30, 2005


Today at work I got called out to check on a sick/injured cat. She was alert and responsive, but her back legs were obviously mangled and there was a fairly big hole in her abdomen. So I took her to the animal hospital, and at first the vet tech said it really wasn't looking promising and I had to sign a waiver giving them permission to euthanize if they couldn't treat her. Then he took some xrays, and said that since the pelvis and spine were in tact, the vet would try and splint the back feet (both of which were snapped clean in two, one of the feet had the bone sticking out through the skin), and since the organs were all in tact, they will prolly just clean her out and stitch her up. Fortunately she has an avid chip so that they can hopefully be able to find the owner. I'm really worried about her, and I hope they're able to get her taken care of. Please just pray for her or something for me, I really want her to be okay, she's a sweet cat and let me pet her and calm her down the whole way there and while she was at the vet. She must have a loving home if they had her chipped, and I know how devestated I'd be if that happened to one of my kitties, so just pray for her to be okay and make it back home to her people.

Adventures in Targetland

So today Fuzzy and I done mosied over to our local Target to start our very own handy dandy bridal registry. Mainly we did it for the free $20 gift card. Our primary registration will be for the honeymoon, because otherwise we won't really be able to affor one, but some people will want to bring actual physical gifts, so the whole Target thing is for those people. I documented our adventure.

general update

So it's been a while since I've posted anything of substance, and I figured it was time to catch up and fill y'all in on where and how I've been lately.

Being a science major is going well, but y'all, I am so effing tired that I swear there are just no words for it. Seriously, I thought the mid-semester dementia was bad on the other side of campus, but that was before I took up residence in the science complex. I mean, for the love of god, people, the classrooms are starting to look like Night of the Living Dead with everyone staring around with blank and somewhat obsessive expressions. Bags under the eyes are required equipment, it turns out, and it reminds me of the quote I heard a long time ago: "Students can perform three functions in any one semester: studying, partying, and sleeping. Only two can be performed during any given semester." Well, I'm here to tell you that for science majors, it's only studying and sleeping, and only ONE can be performed during any given semester. I'm doing well, though, I got a 96 on Bio test number one, an 87% on my chem test (which is prolly an A after the curve, since the average was 54%), and an A in my crim class, seeing as how I've gotten 100%/A on everything I've done in there. The prof even wrote "Bless you, Stacy, right on target" on one of my quizzes, for crying out loud.

So you know how I had no interest in knitting for like the three million years I was out of school and had plenty of time on my hands? Well, now that I have no time whatsoever and way more responsibility with school? Can't. Stop. Knitting. Seriously, is this some sort of cruel joke? But seriously, I'm getting adventurous. I have broken away from squares and basic bowl shapes, ladies and gentlemen and I have mastered the sock. I also got a book of basic patterns, and I swear I shall be making gloves and mittens soon, oh yes. And plans are in the work for my much desired Mr. Rogers Cardigan. Woot Woot. I am now officially the president of HSU's fine Stitch n' Bitch, and word of our existence seems to be moving steadily throughout the campus. People hear me talk about it and say "I've been trying to find out where and when you guys meet!" We're like effing El Dorado or something, apparently. And you know what? I've found a group of girls to pound on tables with, and it's great. Like by a lot.

I have another effing ingrown toenail. UGH. Why, Dad, why did you have to give me THOSE EXACT GENES!!! I'm starting to resign myself that I'm probably going to have to have this one cut out too, which sucks, especially considering my thrilling experience last time. It blows, but I like being able to walk by putting my whole foot on the floor instead of just the outside of my foot.

In short. Stacy sleepy, stacy grumpy, stacy whiney.

the pitter patter of tiny feet

Originally uploaded by shadowmousey.
So I made these socks for my coworker who just had a new baby son, and they are the tiniest and cutest damn things ever. AND they're way too big for his tiny feet because he is so damn little... He was born 6 weeks premature, so she said he's -2 1/2 weeks old now, lol. Between this and the fuzzy feet, I've now knitted obscenely large and obscenely small socks. Hopefully soon I'll finish my normal size socks...

Highlights from Pastels on the Plaza

I feel like ass, and my intestines are currently staging a very un-democratic coup against the rest of my body, but dammit, I love Pastels on the Plaza, so I drug my sorry achey ass out to take pictures of the ones I liked. Which turned out to be the majority of them. These are just the highlights, until I have more time to upload more pics. Until then, enjoy. Seriously. It's a brocolli playing saxaphone.
